It’s not every day that downtown Chicago gets a new set of greystones. So if you’ve had your fill of skyscrapers and cranes, head over to 111 West Chestnut Street where a row of ten new homes designed by Booth Hansen are being built.
Near North Spy Joel dropped the photo above into our tip line, showing that the pit we reported on in 2015 has been filled in, and construction of the new residences is up to the first floor. You can quite clearly see the characteristic stairs and stoops of the buildings already taking shape. And since these are new construction, the basement levels have ¾ windows, instead of much less, which is often the case.
